FedEx Corp. has announced that it is expanding the availability of its SenseAwareSM, which provides customers with near real-time tracking and increased visibility into their shipments.

First announced in November 2009, the next-generation information service was initially available to customers in the healthcare and life sciences industries. Now it is available to customers in all industries—such as aerospace, the arts, financial institutions, and more—who can benefit from this added level of visibility and monitoring.

SenseAwareSM is a comprehensive tracking service that provides near real-time data about customer shipments and the ability to share that information collaboratively with business partners. A multi-sensor device, deeply integrated with a powerful web-based application, enables customers to stay connected to their shipments. The SenseAware service can provide:

• The shipment’s current location
• Accurate temperature readings
• Relative humidity and barometric pressure readings

SenseAware can be easily adopted without infrastructure or large managed-service commitments. The added flexibility of the SenseAware device enables it to be used for single shipments or with large palletized shipments. Customers simply set up a shipment in the SenseAware application and place the activated device in the package before shipping.

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
